One of my favourite seasons for all the ducklings and Foreman as well!=)
Talking about the patient, who says he wants to die
Chase: "It's his call."
Foreman: "So what do we do? We put a plastic bag over his head and get it over with?"
Chase: "No, we— give him a syringe full of morphine. Every doctor I've ever practiced with has done it. They don't want to, they don't like to, but that's the way it is."
Foreman: "I haven't, I won't."
Chase: "Right. Just means we talk about it. [pause] At some point, doing no harm has to mean we allow nature to take its course, not stubbornly standing in the way of it."
Foreman: "Sticking a metal syringe into a plastic I.V. line and pumping in a lethal dose of morphine is not letting nature take its course. Not according to the state of New Jersey."
Cameron: "So it's better we allow him to slowly suffocate in his own plasma?"
